Codemasters has announced F1 2017, the next installment in the formula racing series. The developer also released a trailer showcasing three of the historic cars that will feature in the game: the 1988 McLaren MP4/4, the 1992 Williams FW14B and the 2002 Ferrari F2002.
After an extremely successful year with the highly acclaimed F1 2016, we are delighted to be announcing F1 2017 and re-introducing classic F1 cars back to the series. Classics were incredibly well received when we included them in F1 2013, and in F1 2017 they are back and better than ever. With so many great cars to choose from, it was hard to decide on the final twelve, but we are delighted with our selection of some of the most successful and iconic fan favourites from the past 30 years.
F1 2017 will see the return of classic F1 cars to series, with the game featuring twelve classic F1 cars. In addition, Codemaster stated that the game will also feature an even deeper career mode, numerous multiplayer enhancements, and a brand new ‘Championships’ game mode.
For the first time ever F1 2017 fully integrates the classic experience into the main career mode. As part of your career you will be invited to race in modern day, invitational events in the different classic F1 cars throughout the season. We’re also adding to the variety in F1 2017 with the inclusion of four alternative circuit layouts, as well as numerous new gameplay types. The classic cars will also be available to play in a range of other game modes, including online multiplayer modes and time trial.
F1 2017 releases on the 25th of August on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Those who pre-order or purchase 'Day One' copies of F1 2017 will have exclusive access to the iconic 1988 McLaren MP4/4, as part of the 'F1 2017 Special Edition.' The McLaren MP4/4 car will be available to be purchased at a later date.
